We Are “Mitigating” Our National Economy Into Dust

The word mitigation is now the most over-used word in the English vocabulary. Its original application was describing the flattening of the curve which is used to indicate the growth of the coronavirus and its negative impact on the healthcare industry. The famous and over-used Democrat “modeling” charts predicted hospitals would be overwhelmed and would be unable to handle the demand this vicious virus placed on it, so the government scientists said the nation had to completely shutdown in order to choke the disease and halt its spread. This modeling led directly to the shut down of our economy and the loss of tens of millions of jobs. But regardless of the faulty Democrat modeling, the Wuhan disease proved to be much less fatal than our government scientists predicted.

And now that we’ve seen the spread of the disease level off, the radical political left wants to continue to strangle the economy with further restrictions on jobs and personal freedom, for another three months in some locations, based on the even more idiotic “modeling” and false prediction that the disease will resurge soon, or at the latest this fall, and will combine with the normal cold and flu season to devastate the nation.

I would advance the notion that our nation has already been devastated and that further destroying our economy will certainly not help the situation when families’ house payments are not met and when retirement funds have been spent on food during these jobless months.

The virus is now the political lefts’ version of global warming. For the last 50 years we’ve been frightened by Democrats predicting a new ice age, followed by global warming, then climate change, and we’ve been assured that using our air conditioners and driving our cars have been the cause of this certain death-by-burning. It’s all our fault, say the radical Democrats, and the government should get involved in our personal lives to stop us from participating in these capitalist practices.

For the dual causes of, initially, climate change, and now to help stop the Wuhan virus from spreading, Democrats insist that Americans must change the way we live our lives, which means staying in our homes, not driving, not traveling, not eating out, all of which is making America a third world country. And all the while, the Democrats in the House of Representatives are passing new, multiple-trillion-dollar bills that will fund their pro-immigration, anti-capitalist and unconstitutional notions of how America should become, all under the pretense of bridging the income gap that many out-of-work Americans are experiencing. Big brother will house and feed you, the Democrats say, so sit back, stop working and trust us.

And don’t worry about the lost income and the bankrupt IRAs, because Pelosi and Schumer are there for you. Per the Democrat party, the chaos will never end and we’ll all die if we don’t follow their radical instructions and drive our nation off a cliff.
